What You'll Need

– 80 grams of butter (1/3 cups)

– 100 grams of flour (3/4 cups)

– 100 grams of seed oil (1/2 cups)


How to Get a Cake Out of its Pan

Inside of a glass bowl, pour all the different ingredients mentioned above. Then, start softening the ingredients with a spoon, until they have started mixing together and have reached a crumbly consistence. Then, to blend them together to perfection, mix them using an electrical whisk, until you have obtained a smooth and liquid consistency. Pour this mixture inside of a glass jar.

When you bake, all you'll need to do is get this totally natural, DIY mixture of ingredients and, helping yourself with a kitchen brush (preferably a pastry one), you'll have to brush the bottoms and the edges of your cake pans with the mixture. This will have the be done right before pouring in the cake batter. Once you've poured it in, you'll be ready to bake the cake and you'll be surprised to see how easily the cake, once baked, will come out of the pan, without leaving any residue.


How to Store the Mixture

The mixture has to be stored inside of a glass jar safely closed with a lid. It can be stored inside of the fridge for up to a month. Therefore, when you prepare it, do it knowing that you'll be able to use it in the course of that month. Alternatively, you can freeze the mixture up to 3 months.
